I really wanted to learn who Martin Luther King was and chose this book out of a few others due to it's previous reviews. Like other reviewers I found it a little funny reading an 'autobiography' that wasn't written by the person themselves, or at least a verbal account of their lives to an author (like Malcolm X). I found the way this book is written as slightly odd. As though the author is trying to fit a realistic account from newspaper clippings etc into the autobiography while still controlling the flow of the writing. Besides this confusion of reading MLK say "I ..." and wondering if he'd ever said that comment or somebody has implied he thought that way, this is a good read. This man deserves all the recognition he gets and is not celebrated enough through out the world. If you read this book, please make sure you watch the last 2 minutes of his "I've been to the mountain top" speech on YouTube. It is extremely sad and inspiring.
Very stoked I've finally read this book. There is a lot about the ideals of man and standing for those moral beliefs that I came to respect, understand and wish to add to my own life. I praise God for his work that moved through Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife to impact a nation so much and the world over through his story. A great read and a healthy one.
Could this brave man done more?? It would seem not. Has man really become more civilised?. Perhaps if some of those people could walk in the shoes of others for a while they would see the world through a different light,
